Hawaii--Oceanic Institute

Researchers at the Oceanic Institute produce 120,000 Pacific white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) every year by raising 500 shrimp from each of 240 genetically distinct families, said program director Dr. Shaun Moss. How does he tell one family from another? By implanting a tag in every tail. "It's a labor of love," said Moss. "Each shrimp is picked up and injected with a color tag that can be seen under the cuticle."

OI's family-based selective breeding program has increased the weight of harvested shrimp by 8.3 percent per generation over three generations. The survival rate has improved by 7.9 percent per generation. Researchers and private maturation faculties in Hawaii have developed families that show survival rates of greater than 90 percent when they were fed food containing the Taura syndrome virus.

Moss said: "U.S. consumers represent the largest shrimp market in the world yet domestic production of farmed shrimp is low. Our research shows that selective breeding techniques for shrimp can help make this a more profitable venture and draw more farmers to grow shrimp in the U.S., thereby increasing food security and growing the domestic economy."

According to the state Department of Agriculture, shrimp farmers in Hawaii sold $2.8 million worth of product in 2005, up from $2.25 million in 2004.
